Seismic Zoning Map of India
Entry ID: GSI_BHUJ_SEISMIC_ZONES_MAP


Summary
Abstract: [from http://www.gsi.gov.in/quake.htm]

The first seismic zoning map of India was compiled by the Geological
Survey of India in 1935. The map was based on the extent of the damage
suffered in a particular region due to earthquake in the areas with an
intensity higher than Rossi-Forel Intensiity VII (MM Intensity
VIII). Since then a number of modifications have been made in the
seismic zoning map of the country under the aegis of the Indian Bureau
of Standards (BIS) as an important part of the standards for the
Earthquake Resistant Design of Structures. The seismic zoning map is
under revision by the BIS.
